"short handle" star star star_border star_border star_border I'm slightly below average height and the handle is far too short - already getting back ache from using it. Regret buying. Suitable length for a child of about 6 years. Dustpan bit is fine which is why I am giving it 2 stars. Bristles aren't nearly as stiff as I would like. It is very hard to buy a good broom in lockdown! But very necessary as I have been using it to sweep the carpet when a vacuum cleaner would be too noisy for a packed home. I will continue using my old broom which is shedding bristles everywhere but at least works! Glad I didn't throw it away before buying this.
